My Inspections

What I Provide

  

I will provide a personalized inspection of your home.


A home inspection is an evaluation of the overall condition of a property, which is useful for home buyers and sellers, as well as real estate professionals. It helps parties to a home sale understand the functions of various systems and components of a home, as well as the maintenance issues related to homeownership.


Following my evaluation I will compile my findings into an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions, photos and videos of any issues I've discovered. I'll email you the report within 24-48 hours after my inspection. My job is not done until you understand everything in it.

My Standard Inspection

A general home inspection is performed as a non-invasive, visual examination of a residential property. While a home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists and cannot predict future conditions, an InterNACHI – Certified Professional Inspector® is trained to identify material defects within a home’s specific systems and components that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, as well as those that pose an unreasonable risk to people. 


I will Inspect the structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology. 


I encourage you to attend your inspections so that I can describe my process, describe my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.

My Specialty Inspections

Homebuyer's Inspection

A home is probably the largest purchase you will ever make, so it is important to understand the condition of your new investment. I will provide a non-invasive examination of your home's accessible structure, systems and components. 


While a home inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and cannot reveal every concern that exists (or ever could exist), it will significantly reduce your anxiety by arming you with the knowledge you need to make an informed home-buying decision.

Move-In Certified Seller’s Inspection

Are you selling your home? Let me inspect it before you even list it. A Move-In Certified Seller's Inspection alerts you to any defects or problems with your home so that you can address them before any prospective buyers discover them. 


You can then take the time you need to obtain reasonable repair estimates. Show prospective buyers that you are dealing in good faith. Avoid 11th-hour negotiations and delays, and justify your full asking price by having your home for sale inspected now.

11th Month Warranty Inspection

Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home. I'll come out during the 11th month and perform a full home inspection before the builder's warranty expires. 


Following your inspection, you will receive a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the of inspection. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they're still enforced.

Annual Home Maintenance Inspection

Especially if you are a new homeowner, an Annual Home Maintenance Inspection can help you understand and plan for the demands of maintaining your new home properly. Some tasks are seasonal and some items require more frequent attention.


Let me help you start on the path of responsible home ownership by identifying any issues and educate you on what needs to be done each year to keep your home in top condition. 


Even if you are a veteran homeowner, my inspection can verify whether your home’s maintenance is sufficient or whether any problems have developed over the past year.

Multi Unit Housing

I can inspect your investment/rental property having up to four separate residential units. 

New Construction Phase Inspections

The purpose of phase inspections is to ensure that any challenges that arise are immediately addressed. Demand for homes in Colorado is extremely high, builders are constructing as fast as they can which can result in poor quality. 


My goal is to present a non-biased opinion for quality workmanship and installation. The last thing you want in a new home are structural, electrical and plumbing issues. A thorough inspection during the various construction phases can help avoid issues that may arise. 


Our goal is not to call out contractors for poor construction practices, but to give you peace of mind that your home is safe for your family to live in. Normally, if we find an issue during our inspection, we can alert the builder to the issue and develop a solution to correct it. 

FREE Home Maintenance Book

Every home inspection includes "Now That You've had a Home Inspection" a home maintenance book. This book was written by InterNACHI and is a great resource to answer your home maintenance questions.
